Mothers are invincible, come in all forms, and will do anything to protect the ones they love. They possess an inherent fierceness, that "maternal instinct" that goes into overdrive when those they are called on to protect are threatened. In Tough Mothers, the new book from the creator of Rejected Princesses, fifty such matriarchs are showcased in deeply researched, lively entries accompanied with the same "Princess" style art as featured in the first book.

These women were mothers in the literal sense who fought to protect their children are also "mothers" of artistic movements, inventions, social causes, and even nations. Spanning from Ancient times to modern day, and locales all over the globe, Jason Porath has once again created shined a spotlight on lesser known figures, but important women who have changed the course of history.
